Bill Riley

Interim Brookhaven Attorney Bill Riley was appointed as the city’s interim solicitor Jan. 22.

Mayor J. Max Davis said the city is taking bids for the position of solicitor, but “Mr. Riley is best suited right now to make sure we have all our ‘I’s dotted and ‘t’s crossed.”

Riley also serves as solicitor for the city of Sandy Springs and city attorney for Johns Creek.

He served as the pro bono attorney for the Governor’s Commission on Brookhaven before taking on the position of interim city attorney for Brookhaven.

“No one knows municipal law like Bill Riley,” Councilwoman Rebecca Chase Williams said. “I think we’re certainly blessed and lucky to have Mr. Riley available to do this.”
